.054 sounds a little big.....I tune to B and use the D'Addario Jazz Medium set, 13-56. I would say 11-50 would work just fine. You do need to raise the action a bit when tuning down with heavy strings, due to the larger diameter. When tuning lower with heavy strings, add another spring when going lower than C# for best results. You will probably still need to turn the trem claw screws clockwise quite a bit to get it floating correctly. Hope this is helpful.
